The Top Real Estate Companies in Texas

Hot tech industries and diverse economies are fueling housing demand in Texas, home to the nation’s fastest growing housing markets in 2024, according to a forecast by the National Association of Realtors. Austin and Dallas-Fort Worth are expected to be the nation’s top two markets based on demand, while Houston ranked sixth.

The average home value in Texas is about $298,624, reports Zillow. That’s about a 0.1% decrease from a year ago. But home prices can vary substantially from one metro area within the state to another.

The median home price in Houston, for example, is $264,626. The median home price in the Dallas-Fort Worth area is $307,990. And in Austin, the median home price is even higher at $4,533,719. It’s a different story in the northern part of the state, however: Amarillo’s median home price is just $194,790.

Robust population and job growth are fueling new construction in Texas’ top three metro areas. While prices in the cities are expected to remain steady, smaller towns like Lamesa and Dumas in northwest Texas might see price corrections, according to the Houston Association of Realtors.

The combination of warmer weather and no state income tax could make Texas an ideal spot to plant roots, whether you’re still working or are looking for a place to retire.

No matter where you decide to settle down in Texas, it’s important to find the right real estate company to help with your home search. Here is a list of the top real estate firms in Texas by sales volume, according to RealTrends agent ranking service.
